Exam timetables and mitigating circumstances

Hi, Chloe your Education Officer here with an update and information regarding this year’s exam season plus info about mitigating circumstances in light of the UCU strike and other events.

I’ve been working closely with SSLC chairs, the Dean of Students’ Office and the exams team to ensure that students receive an accurate final timetable this year, and more clarity about exam season and the timetabling process following last year’s uncertainty.

  1. This year, to avoid uncertainties, students will receive one final and accurate exam timetable (including date, time and location of exams) on 14th April. Departments will be checking over the provisional timetable to check for accuracy, so:
  2. Please use the new function on Tabula to check that your assessment registration data is correct for each module and, if you spot any errors, let your department know immediately!
    1. In future, the University will ensure that SSLC members review a PTT with departments, and I’ll be pushing for commitment to an even earlier release date.
  3. Check out University’s new exams portal online at There, you’ll find:
    1. FAQs on all issues relating to exams
    2. online guidance on exam preparation including, revision tips, exam room guides and workshops
    3. links to wellbeing support and events
    4. where to find study space across campus and beyond
    5. and more!

Mitigating circumstances: strikes and coronavirus

If you feel that the recent strike action has had a significant impact on your ability to study or complete assessed work, you can submit mitigating circumstances to your department in line with usual procedures.

In light of the evolving situation around the Coronavirus, if you have concerns, please read the University’s online advice and updates in the first instance. Again, if issues have a significant impact on your ability to study or complete assessed work, then mitigating circumstances channels are available to use too.

Please note that, as the situation with Coronavirus is ongoing, there may be further updates from the University regarding assessments and examinations still to come, so please keep an eye on your email over the coming weeks as this is how they will let you know about any additional developments!
